You Are a Life Blogger!

Your blog is the story of your life - a living diary.

If it happens, you blog it. And you make it as entertaining as possible.

You may be guilty of over-sharing a bit on your blog, but you can't help it.

Your life is truly an open book. Or in this case, an open blog!

What Kind of Blogger Are You?

I created two 'versions' of a new award or logo ... and am wondering which you like best & why? You're welcome to 'snag & share' with others if you leave me a comment ... just because.
I shared two different 'Blogging Buddy' awards at Sacred Ruminations this morning and am looking for feedback on those too (if you've got a little time to spare).

It's been a long while! Hello. It seems as though in my travels, I've seen your name so often, and I believe we have crossed paths a few months back, when I first started blogging. I wanted to say that I love Natalie Goldberg. She was required reading in my creative writing classes some years ago. My favorite is "Wild Mind." That little book taught me more about writing...
*laughing* Before this e-mail becomes a tome... Hope you had a
wonderful weekend!

Betty said...

As usual I enjoyed reading your meme. As far as the logo is concerned, I like the first one better. You are getting so creative - makes me jealous, lol.

Unknown said...

Great mutterings today.

Mine can be found ::here::.

Have a great week!

Mariposa said...

And I miss this too!

Lovely mutterings there!

kitten said...

Great answers today. Don't feel like playing like I normally try to.
Your blog is the story of your life - a living diary. (This was me 2 also.)

kitten said...

Ps. I almost forgot. I like the 1st picture. The 2nd one is too fuzzy glary like.
The 1st one is very appealing!

Joyce said...

I love the quote about stress being an ignorant state because it believes everything is an emergency!

Your logos are both lovely; the first is my favorite. :)

Karen said...

I'm a life blogger too--more often than not, we seem to come up the same!

I like the top one--I like the hint of more details, like the fur on the kitty being more obvious. Though, I kind of prefer the lightness of the bottom one...okay, so I can't make up my mind...

Mary said...


I enjoyed catching up on your blog and your Unconscious Mutterings. Love the hacky sack. Cute!

I have snagged the first award. I favor it over the other. I think it looks a bit more realistic. Thanks for sharing.


Momisodes said...

I'm a life blogger too :) I see how we have that in common.

Love what you've done to the pics!

Hootin’ Anni – It’s a game my sisters boys played often but that I never mastered ;--)

Lucas – Thanks … I appreciate your first visit to Small Reflections and am glad you enjoyed it.

Jo (a retired teacher) – I enjoyed all your ‘mutterings’ … especially your response to ‘hack’ and ‘pumped’ … thanks for playing along here in comments. Methinks ALL answers are ‘correct’ when muttering unconsciously.

Mike Golch – Glad you decided to play along here too. Your responses to ‘heist’ and ‘hack’ are most original … as are your answers for ‘monkey’ and ‘Brass’ … none of them would have occurred to me in a million years, but all are PERFECT in so many ways.

Petra Michelle – Yes, it HAS been a while. I used Natalie Goldberg’s ideas when I taught writing to others, and find her inspirational even today for my own writing. Hope you won’t be a stranger again …

Betty – I’m glad … and thanks for the feedback. I am learning as I go and I get by with a bit of help from my friends.

Laane – Thanks … I enjoyed your too ;--)

Mariposa – It’s good to see you out and about in the Blogosphere. I hope you will join UM and BYBS as time and energy permit. I find both help me get going when inspiration lags.

Kitten – It’s okay … there’s never any pressure … just the invitation if it seems like fun and you have the time. Thanks for the feedback. It seems others agree with you … and I’m learning all the time.

Joyce – This quote spoke to ME today … actually they USUALLY reflect what’s going on in my mind as I create and publish each day now that I think of it, but it’s always interesting to know when these thoughts ‘resonate’ with others too. Thanks for the feedback on the logos. I have such trouble making up my mind when I experiment and it’s good to know what others think. Molly doesn’t have much of an opinion on such things.

Karen – How interesting … we DO seem to have much in common even though lately I’m feeling like ‘a dinosaur’ … and even better, I love the feedback about the two versions of the award because what you wrote is pretty much identical to what was running through my mind as I tried to decide which to use ... seriously!!!

Mary – I’m glad in all respects. It seems the first is the favorite of most.

Sandy (of Momisodes) – I certainly see YOU as a ‘Life Blogger’ … but not so much ME in that category. Perhaps I share more of myself than I realize … unconsciously? Thanks for the feedback … I love being able to USE what I’m learning in my PSE6 classes.

To all – I apologize for being S L O W to respond here. I certainly ENJOY all of your comments and revisit them often … just because. I also take pleasure in visiting your blogs as time permits … and am delighted to have encountered to all in this ‘virtual’ world. I hope you’re having a great week!
Hugs and blessings,

Monique said...

Oh hacky sack - perfect and fun.

storyteller said...

Monique – I was surprised that more participants didn’t think of this game. It’s a favorite of my sister’s boys, but I’ve never mastered it. Sorry I overlooked your comment until today. Thanks for dropping by.
Hugs and blessings,
